It would seem that scientists never sleep and that there is a conspracy for the need to rewrite and publish new guide books and articles to reflect the findings…. Anyway…
Berberomeloe castuo is found in Extremadura and is named after the local Extremeño accent “el castuo”. Berberomeloe comunero is named after the historic uprisings in Castilla. Berberomeloe indalo after the Neolithic rock figure of the Indalo in Almeria. Berberomeloe payoya in Cádiz and Malaga, named after the goat that produces milk to create the payoyo cheese.
